Can't believe there's not already a thread on him thanks for starting one He's done some really nice campaigns.

Some info on him:

John Rankin Waddell (working name Rankin, born 1966, Paisley, Glasgow) is a British portrait and fashion photographer. His subjects have included Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Kylie Minogue, Leonardo DiCaprio, the Spice Girls, Cate Blanchett, Damien Hirst, Queen Elizabeth II and Tony Blair.
Born in Glasgow, he was brought up in St Albans, Hertfordshire. After being expelled from school, he briefly studied accountancy at Brighton Polytechnic before moving to Peckham and studying photography at the London College of Printing, which he left to found Dazed & Confused with Jefferson Hack in 1991.
He launched his own quarterly fashion magazine, RANK, in December 2000. In 2002 he launched with art gallery owner Alex Proud a photographic book imprint, Vision On. He also publishes Another Magazine and more recently Another Man. He continues to work in fashion, advertising and for magazines internationally. He is divorced from the actress Kate Hardie.
Rankin has recently moved into film production with his project The Lives of the Saints, a gangster film set in London.
Rankin was recently the photograper for Regatta’s upcoming advertising campaign featuring outdoor loving celebrities; Bill Oddie, Janet Street-Porter, Michaela Strachan and ex-Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan. The photo shoots which took place at Richmond Park, Hampstead Heath and a Scenic location in Yorkshire, were part of Regatta’s efforts to promote their forthcoming Spring/Summer 2008 range.

Interesting interview from guardianarts.co.uk

What got you started?
I saw W Eugene Smith's work at the Barbican art gallery a long time ago. I was completely inspired to be that kind of photographer.
What was your big break?
Photographing Björk for Dazed and Confused in the early 1990s. It was the first time I earned a substantial fee for doing something that I loved.
If someone saw one of your photographs in 1,000 years' time, what would it tell them about the year 2006?
Digital retouching has a massive influence on photography now. People looking back at this period in time will see that everything is enhanced - from TV programmes to people. Some of my photographs try to reject that.
Is your work fashionable? No - I think the most important thing in photography is that your work survives the test of time.
Who or what have you sacrificed for your art?
My personal life, until recently.
What's the greatest threat to art today?
Commerce. We all earn far too much money.
Does an artist need to suffer to create?
It certainly helps if you're going through a difficult time, whether it's financial or personal.
Vinyl or MP3?
Vinyl because the sound quality is better. MP3s because I'm as lazy as every other person in the world.
What one song would you choose as the soundtrack to your life?
The one song I always go back to is I See a Darkness by Will Oldham. Johnny Cash does a version that I particularly like.
What's your favourite film?
Cinema Paradiso - emotionally it takes me on a journey each time. It makes me cry, and I do like a cry. I'm a bit of a baby, really.
What cultural tip would you give a tourist about Britain's arts scene?
Don't believe the hype.
What work of art would you most like to own?
Pretty much anything by Damien Hirst.
Best thing you've seen on TV recently?
Prime Suspect.
Who's the next you?
I would never want there to be another me. I wouldn't want to inflict that on the world. I've been a bit of a nightmare in my life.
In the movie of your life, who plays you?
Marc Warren. He would play me very well - a skinnier and better-looking me.
What would you do if your eyes failed?
Blag it and buy an auto-focus camera.
Who do you envy?
My son. He's got his whole life ahead of him. I envy that innocence and potential.
Who would you most like to work with?
Sean Penn. I'm trying to direct films at the moment and I'm very attracted to him creatively.
High point
My first exhibition, Female Nudes
Low point
I don't have any - it's been pretty much up all the way
